Looking at my World from a Different Place



Yesterday’s Daily Post prompt asks us to discuss an imperfection that we cherish.  I passed by the prompt because I could not think of anything off the top of my head.  However, this morning, I stumbled across this wonderful TED talk.  The speaker uses the imperfection of Raku pottery as a metaphor for the creative process.  If you have about 15 minutes, may I suggest you view it.

  1. I always enjoy TED Talks, thanks, Lori. My friend, who has C.P. and I, who have polio, were talking the other day and both admitted that we didn’t feel the need to be “fixed” but were “comfortable” with our disabilities. I like the word “embrace”—yes, that’s a good word!. Now, if we could just get the folks who think their nose is too long, their car too old, or their house too small, to use the word embrace, we might all relax.

  2. Limits and loss have shaped my direction. Undertaking this art course has been a sobering reminder of my limits but has sent me full circle, back to who I am and what I know I do best. Thank you for sharing this Lori!
